MONTREAL—Time will tell soon enough whether Friday's climate march will have been a watershed event in the federal campaign and if so, to which party's benefit.

But regardless of how last week's pan-Canadian event plays out in the ballot box, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer's pointed absence should go some way to clear the smoke that has apparently blinded some to the significant differences between the climate policies of the two main contenders in the election.

When it comes to addressing climate change, Justin Trudeau is — in the eyes of many — offering a half-empty glass, one whose water is clouded to boot by the nationalization of the Trans Mountain pipeline.
